Abstract

High -resolution imaging of small objects located deep within the body poses a major challenge to MR imaging technology. Signal aliasing from the tissues surrounding the selected region, and poor S/N ratio resulting from a large sensitive field of RF receiving coil impede clinical use of microscopic MR imaging. In this paper, we present our recent work on the class of such RF receivers targeted at intravenous and intraarterial MR imaging.
